The publication’s sources in the telco industry claim that the Galaxy S5 Prime will be able to support download speeds of up to 225Mbps thanks to its inclusion of Qualcomm'sMDM 9635 chip which was released last November and that it is capable of sending and receiving data through three different spectrum bands.

To recap, the Galaxy S5 Prime is set to be Samsung's "super premium" flagship smartphone which will not only feature a metal body but also apparently feature a 5.1-inch 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD or 2K) display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 16-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, LTE-Advanced support, microSD support and Android 4.4.3 KitKat . No official dates have been provided as of yet, but we’ve got every reason to believe that Samsung will be revealing more within the next month.
